Tourism Information

50 years ago, driving from Columbus through the Hocking Hills on US 33 toward the Ohio River, you would pass through the Gateway to Ohio's Scenic Wonderland — driving down Logan's Main Street past the Hocking County Courthouse, perhaps stopping for lunch, or to pick up supplies, or simply to stretch your legs.

Today, the same Main Street in downtown Logan is just 1/3 of a mile from the downtown (State Route 93) exit from US 33.  It is still a good place to stop for lunch or simply to stretch you legs...and it is getting better.

Here are three good sources for tourism information about Logan and the Hocking Hills, followed by links to information about transportation services, three attractions in downtown Logan and a reminder about walking tours of downtown Logan.
